One thing that recyclers have in common is thinking outside of the box and always seeking new ways to keep our treasures organized . . . of course with other recycled items! After all, it's important to be able to find the bits of 'whatever' easily for quick and easy access. Recyclers have the ability to see usefulness in objects that others think are . . . . well let's be honest . . . . . trash. Sometimes our treasures come straight out of the garbage, rummage sales, and other times we are lucky enough to be in the right place at the right time.
Well, I was gifted with a big shoe cubbie. I thought it would be perfect to use to organize my 'in progress' projects, stack up folded fabric . . . or whatever better idea came along first. So, it's been sitting in the basement, just waiting.
I've been at this a long time. Even as a kid I was aware that I never used anything for its intended purpose. When making clothing, I just dove in and started cutting, never following the directions, when baking I added the ingredients in the order of my choice - not the recipe. And, to my husbands' dismay, when I get a new electronic device, I just dive in and start playing with it. . never ever reading the directions. So its no shock that this shoe cubbie will never see a shoe.
Today I got it, the stroke of brilliance I had been waiting for. While rearranging the basement to better organize my collected treasures, I realized that this shoe cubbie would be a perfect way to organize my rolls of lace and trims. So I began to experiment. Hmmmm. Happily, I love it!
